Best hotels in Rhodes

Mitsis Alila Resort & Spa

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.9

Mitsis Alila Resort & Spa

One of the best hotels in Greece. It is located in the Aegean South Islands and opened in 2013. The beach of this hotel complex is just around the corner. But the airport is much farther – about 20 km. If you are interested in the city center of Rhodes, then you need to drive 8 km to it. It is not necessary to order an expensive taxi for this – there is a bus stop near the hotel.

In total, this hotel includes 314 rooms. Not a record, but you can still count on a certain number of rooms to be available at any time of the year. 120 rooms here belong to the Superior double room type, and 117 rooms – to the Family room. In a word, there are simply no rooms with a small area here, it is spacious – absolutely in every room. There are also rooms for children over 12 years old. Well, a large group of friends can book accommodation in bungalows – there are 54 of them, about half of them have a private pool.

It's nice that the hotel has no Wi-Fi problems – you can count on a speed of 2 Mb / s. Also, each visitor is provided with a bottle of wine, which can be taken from the minibar. The room also has a coffee machine, toiletries, individual air conditioning, telephone, 26-inch TV, safe and balcony or terrace. An iron and ironing board are available at an additional cost. When decorating your room, be sure to check out exactly what the bathroom looks like! The fact is that some of them have a bath, but do not have a shower.

Of course, in the hotel you need not only to live, but also to eat something. In this regard, you are unlikely to face any problems. There is only one type of food: 'All inclusive'. You can eat not only in the main restaurant, but also in many others. But do not forget that you will need to pre-order a table anyway. If you are too lazy, then you risk eating only burgers in one of the cafes. It remains to add that the restaurants open here offer Asian, Italian, Mexican and Greek cuisine.

Of course, there are also a large number of bars on site. However, we recommend not to get carried away with alcoholic drinks, otherwise you will miss a number of entertainment. It regularly hosts performances by professional DJs, teaches swimming lessons, teaches drawing, and also offers tennis, mini-football, billiards, water polo, darts and water sports. The gym has not been forgotten either. Children should appreciate the multilingual animation team. Quests and horseback riding are offered at an additional cost. And a fitness center that will allow girls to keep their figure in perfect shape. Women can also spend on a full visit to the spa, which has a heated Jacuzzi. Massages, face and body care, hairdressing, hammam, manicure and pedicure are carried out here.

And if we are talking only about hotels for families with children in our rating, then we cannot but tell about children's entertainment. Children can splash in the children's pool with seawater, visit the playground, go to the mini-disco, and also sign up for the mini-club. The hotel offers highchairs in the restaurant, a cot, a potty, a baby bath, a radio nanny and even a bottle warmer. All hotels would have such a service!

We should finish the story about the beach. He is striking here with his purity. However, nothing more can be said about him. It consists of small pebbles with sand, towels are free for all visitors. Unfortunately, there is no coral reef here. But on the other hand, you can rent a jet ski, feeling a surge of emotions from high speed.

Advantages

  • A large number of activities for children;
  • There are a variety of things for babies, from cribs to baby sitters;
  • Clean and beautiful beach;
  • Russian-speaking reception;
  • Swimming and drawing lessons are provided;
  • A large number of restaurants and bars;
  • You can go in for sports;
  • There is a gym;
  • The hotel is not very far from the city center;
  • Live music is played in the evening;
  • Bicycles and jet skis for rent.

disadvantages

  • No water park;
  • The pools only have seawater;
  • There is no buffet.

Rodos Palladium Leisure & Wellness

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.8

Rodos Palladium Leisure & Wellness

This hotel is located on the island of Rhodes. From it to the airport – about 15 km. The city of Rhodes is located much closer – eight kilometers. There is a large golf club at the same distance. However, his visit is unlikely to be affordable for the majority of residents of this hotel complex.

The hotel has a total area of ​​30,000 sq. m. includes 377 rooms and a beach, awarded the Blue Flag. Rooms can be found in the six-storey main building, in three adjacent four-storey buildings, and in three buildings with one floor less. And there is also a separate one-story building, but it consists exclusively of family rooms – everything is done so that the visitor does not have to experience problems with the stroller in which the child is.

It should be noted that the rooms here are generally extremely small. Agree, 27 sq. m is not what you expect from a 'five stars'. Of course, there are also slightly larger rooms, but you will have to pay more for them. Be that as it may, each room is equipped with individual air conditioning, TV with satellite channels, DVD player, safe, minibar, hairdryer, telephone, toiletries and a desk. In a word, a standard set for a hotel of superior comfort. The hotel owner also notes the presence of smoke detectors and other security equipment. But it seems to us that every five-star hotel, in whatever country it is located, possesses them.

The hotel has two restaurants. The former offers a breakfast buffet and dinner with international and local cuisine. The second restaurant is called Thalassa, it belongs to the a la carte type. It offers Mediterranean cuisine. It should be noted that restaurants follow the dress code – men visiting them must wear long trousers and women must wear dresses. You can also wear beachwear in the bar. There are at least three bars here, one of them is by the pool.

Swimming here, as you already understood, is possible not only in the sea. There are three swimming pools on the territory of the hotel complex. One is open and is only used in summer. The second one is covered and heated. The third pool is for children and has a very shallow depth. Water everywhere is exceptionally fresh. You can also sit in the jacuzzi here.

On the beach and in the pools, guests are offered umbrellas, sun loungers and towels. But one day the moment comes when splashing in the water gets boring. In this case, you can go to listen to live music and watch the performances of entertainment teams. There is also a basketball and volleyball court, a mini-golf course, a beach volleyball court, a football field and two tennis courts to the servants of visitors. You can also do water gymnastics here.

As for the offer for children, nothing special can be singled out. Yes, there is a mini club here. Still, it cannot be said that this hotel complex is tailored exclusively for pleasing little children. Otherwise, the hotel owners would have built at least a small water park.

Advantages

  • Excellent sandy and pebble beach;
  • Daily live music, dancing and other entertainment;
  • You can do different kinds of sports;
  • There are rooms for people with disabilities;
  • A large number of pools;
  • You can visit the fitness center;
  • Restaurants are served with delicious dishes;
  • There are all conditions for corporate meetings.

disadvantages

  • There are not many entertainments for children;
  • Indoor pool, sauna and steam room – extra cost;
  • Buffet breakfast only.

Mitsis Faliraki Beach Hotel & Spa

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.7

Mitsis Faliraki Beach Hotel & Spa

As the name suggests, this hotel is located on the island of Faliraki Rhodes. It opened in 2011. The hotel complex offers a lot of entertainment and a relaxing holiday on the sandy beach. Some confusion is caused only by a decent distance from the city of Rhodes and the airport – 14 and 20 km to them, respectively. Of course, there is a bus stop opposite the hotel, but this does not negate the fact that it will take a long time to get to the city. However, some other representatives of our rating suggest an even longer trip.

In total, the hotel complex includes 348 rooms. Moreover, almost all of them belong to the Superior Standard type. Only 15 rooms are somehow different – they correspond to the Superior Family type. And they are recommended to be booked for families with children, whose age is by no means small.

The filling of the rooms corresponds to the 'five stars'. This hotel has beach towels that are changed every day, a bottle of wine from the minibar, safe, balcony or terrace, tea and coffee making facilities, 32-inch TV, individual air conditioning, hairdryer, scales, toiletries and phone. In short, there is everything, and even a little more. As for the Superior Family rooms, they have a partition between the rooms and an additional air conditioner. Of course, there are also two beds.

Children are unlikely to express any complaints about their place of residence. They will definitely enjoy the disco and other events created just for them. They can also eat without any problems, since the restaurant has special high chairs for children. A playground and a children's pool are also built for them. Children 4-11 years old can visit the mini-club, open four hours a day. Parents of younger children will not face problems either – they will be provided with a baby bath, sterilizer, radio nanny, bottle warmer, chamber pot, thermos and a small cot.

Well, if we talk about adults, they will spend most of their time relaxing on a sandy beach. It has a very gentle entrance to the sea, which will definitely please most of the visitors. Free of charge all hotel guests are provided with everything necessary for a comfortable stay on the beach: towels, sun loungers and umbrellas.

When you want to eat, you are invited to visit the Premium All Inclusive restaurant. Snacks, drinks and meals are free throughout the day. Breakfast is an American buffet while lunch and dinner are buffet style. It's nice that this restaurant is open around the clock. There are also 'a la carte' food outlets here, offering different national cuisines, but doing so for an additional fee. They also require prior registration.

What else does the infrastructure of this hotel include? There are three outdoor pools, a gym, a sun-lounger terrace, a floodlit, hard-surfaced tennis court, and several sports fields. All of this can be used free of charge. The hotel also boasts an international animation team and live music. Someone will appreciate the different lessons: here you can be taught drawing and swimming.

Perhaps this is a very good hotel. However, a tour with rest on its territory will cost you at least 220 thousand rubles. in one week. Not the smallest amount.

Advantages

  • You can go horse riding, water polo, tennis and more;
  • There is a gym;
  • A variety of restaurants and bars are available;
  • A large number of pools;
  • All kinds of master classes are taught regularly;
  • There are many activities for children.

disadvantages

  • Sun loungers on the beach – extra charge;
  • High cost of living.

La Marquise Luxury Resort Complex

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.6

La Marquise Luxury Resort Complex

Another five-star hotel in our rating, located on the island of Rhodes. He also collects a lot of positive reviews. A week of living in his room is estimated at at least 90 thousand rubles. And this is outside of different tours, to this cost you still need to add air tickets. It's unpleasant that this price tag only includes breakfast. Alas, for 'All Inclusive' you have to pay extra money. And an unpleasant feature is connected with this: waiters have to be annoying, keeping track of what exactly visitors who paid only for breakfast are doing. In a word, I would like the hotel to be completely transferred to the All Inclusive system in the future, so that drinks and snacks can be freely consumed without giving the waiter information about the room where you are staying.

Another disadvantage of the hotel is that not all of its rooms are as clean as possible. Tourists regularly complain that the door to the balcony has a lot of fingerprints, this also applies to the mirror in the room. The laziness of the staff is also noticeable in other things in the room. Not good!

However, let's already get acquainted with what exactly the infrastructure of the hotel complex offers. There are 386 rooms here. Among them are many standard rooms, the area of ​​which does not exceed 30 square meters. m. for 3 sq. m more rooms 'Lux' turned out. There are also family suites, junior suites and more expensive rooms. Even the bungalows have not been forgotten. Inside each room there is a TV, control panel, hairdryer, toiletries, telephone, air conditioning, safe and mini-bar, the contents of which are purchased for an additional fee. Coffee or tea will be brought to your room every morning.

On the territory of the hotel grows a garden familiar to Greece, consisting of heat-loving plants. It is on it that the windows of many inexpensive rooms overlook. There are also rooms overlooking the pool. Well, VIP rooms offer panoramic sea views. But if you come to a business meeting, it is unlikely that it will be important for you. But on the other hand, you will definitely be delighted with two rooms for such meetings, intervening 80 and 170 people. There is also a huge conference hall with 450 seats.

As already mentioned, the hotel only offers breakfast on a free basis. For an additional fee, you can eat at the main restaurant Da Vinci. Here you can taste Mediterranean, international and local cuisine. It's nice that this establishment works around the clock. However, at night the choices will be limited. Also on the territory of the hotel complex there is a lounge bar, a panoramic bar, as well as bars by the pool and on the beach.

It's extremely difficult to find fault with the beach here. For his purity, he received a 'blue flag'. The entrance to the sea can be carried out both on sand and pebbles. If the sun gets bored, you can sit under an umbrella. By the way, umbrellas and sun loungers are also provided by the pool.

Spending all the time on the beach is not recommended, it can get boring. And you need to evaluate other entertainment! First of all, the pools are pleasing. The central water changes regularly, so it is absolutely always clean. The same can be said about the swimming pool located on the top floor of the main building. An indoor heated swimming pool can also be found on site. There are also other water areas. Suffice it to say that 25 rooms have their own pools!

Of course, the hotel also offers many other entertainment options. For example, you can go fishing here. Or ride a banana. Tennis, basketball, table tennis, billiards and even golf are also available to hotel visitors. Scuba diving has not been forgotten either. You can also note the presence of a Turkish bath, sauna and spa.

It remains to add that the hotel does its best to please children. If you notify the hotel management in advance, there will be a playground in your room. You can also use babysitting services. Slightly older children will definitely appreciate the playground and the corresponding mini-club. A children's pool was also built here, which has an extremely shallow depth.

Advantages

  • There are rooms for people with disabilities;
  • A large number of pools;
  • You can go in for sports;
  • There are bars near the pool and on the beach;
  • A playground and a children's pool have been built;
  • The hotel is 10 km from the city;
  • There are conference halls and meeting rooms;
  • Very nice beach.

disadvantages

  • Not very large room area;
  • High cost of living;
  • Not all rooms are completely clean;
  • There is only one restaurant.

Sentido Apollo Blu

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.5

Sentido Apollo Blu

Another hotel located on the island of Rhodes. He also collects a lot of positive reviews, and a number of reviews with ratings of three or four stars. It so happens that the experience of a trip to Greece always depends on whether you are lucky. Practice shows that from season to season the staff and the mood of the hotel management can vary greatly. As a result, someone will not face any shortcomings, others will complain of some problems in a year, and in a year the hotel will again seem ideal.

However, let's take a look at the advantages of this hotel complex. Firstly, it only includes 150 numbers. Yes, it makes you book a room strongly in advance. But on the other hand, there are relatively few people on the territory. You will not suffer from noise or anything like that. The rooms here are of different types. If you are traveling to Greece with a child whose age is equal to or greater than 12 years old, then it is better to order a room with adjoining rooms. Many of these rooms even have a private pool, which you and your child will appreciate.

In each room you should look for a TV with satellite channels, hairdryer, central air conditioning, balcony or terrace, telephone and toiletries. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi is only available here for a fee. This also applies to the safe. It's sad.

Most of the time, visitors to the hotel are on the beach. And here you will find an extremely unpleasant surprise! His visit requires additional payment, as money will be asked for towels, mattresses and sun loungers! One gets the impression that the beach belongs to another private person. This is hinted at at least by the fact that towels, mattresses and sun loungers on the territory of the pool can be used free of charge.

Despite the modest size of the hotel complex, there are as many as three children's pools on its territory. There is also a mini-club for children. There is also a playground here and matching chairs are easy to find in the restaurant. If the child is very young, a baby cot can be placed in the room. By the way, the animation team regularly performs on the territory of the hotel!

Pools, jacuzzis, gym – it's all there. Beach volleyball and table tennis are also available. Alas, you will have to forget about other sports, with the exception of some water sports. This is odd because a tennis court is the standard for most five star hotels.

As far as food is concerned, the hotel offers three types of food: 'Breakfast', 'Half Board' and 'Full Board'. The main restaurant offers international cuisine and is open from 18:30 to 21:00. Well, the bars are open from morning until late at night.

It remains to add that this hotel is located 13 km from the city of Rhodes, while the airport is 17 km away. The distances are rather big, but they cannot be called huge either. By the way, the village of Kallithea is located 1.5 km from the hotel complex, which can also be visited.

This hotel was only included in our rating because of its beauty. Alas, for most Russians, it will be too expensive. A week-long tour to this hotel complex costs at least 180 thousand rubles. At the same time, as you noticed, you have to pay extra for a lot. It seems to us that it is better to look for a hotel with its own beach, access to which is free.

Advantages

  • The hotel complex is fairly quiet;
  • Balcony or terrace are available in each room;
  • There is a gym;
  • A large number of swimming pools, including children's;
  • Water skiing, windsurfing and catamaran available;
  • There is a conference room for 600 people.

disadvantages

  • Rooms may be cleaned at the wrong time;
  • A safe is provided for money;
  • The beach requires a separate payment;
  • Very high cost of living.

Atrium Prestigie Thalasso Spa Resort & Villas

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.5

Atrium Prestigie Thalasso Spa Resort & Villas

This hotel is already much larger than the option discussed above. It includes 250 rooms. And this is one of the most distant representatives of our rating. After the airport, you have to drive 77 km to get to it. Rhodes is 75 km away. However, no one bothers to visit Lindos or Zhennadi – these settlements are 30 and 12 km away, respectively. You can get to them not only by taxi, but also by bus – the corresponding stop is located opposite the hotel entrance.

The hotel complex consists of a variety of rooms. Some of them have a garden view, others have a pool view, and the most expensive ones have a sea view. Be that as it may, each room has a minibar with a refrigerator, a balcony or terrace, a safe (its use does not require payment), air conditioning, a work desk, a set for making tea or coffee (four capsules of coffee per day are provided free of charge ), toiletries and a telephone. Rooms with a jacuzzi look curious – there are panoramic windows in their bathroom.

Gardens and terraces are not the whole infrastructure of the hotel. There are two outdoor freshwater pools. The largest of them is designed in the form of a lagoon. The smaller pool is for a relaxing break. The hotel also offers a luggage storage room, a conference room for 70 people, a mini market, a jewelry store and a boutique selling a variety of beachwear.

This hotel has a private beach with a sand and pebble entrance to the sea. Sun loungers and umbrellas are provided free of charge, as are towels. When you get tired of resting under the scorching sun, you can stretch your legs on the hard-surfaced tennis court (illuminated by floodlights in the evening). You can also visit the fitness center, do aqua aerobics, play table tennis and watch the animation program. Basketball, volleyball and mini golf are also available here. And all of the above is free. As well as the indoor heated pool, thanks to which it functions even in winter.

Of course, there are also paid entertainment here. The hotel makes extra money with billiards, a spa with an indoor seawater pool, sauna, Turkish bath, solarium, jacuzzi, massage and themed nights. Also, dry cleaning, laundry, car rental, receptionist, wedding ceremonies, doctor and room service are available on a paid basis. The hotel can also organize excursions.

It's nice that the hotel doesn't ask for money for Wi-Fi. It is good news that the Internet is provided at high speed – photos on the social network are uploaded without any problems. However, you will only use the Internet when your children are having fun. An open-air playground has been created especially for them. It is fenced and connected to the mini-club by a large tunnel. Any child can also splash in the children's section in the adult pool, where the depth is only 0.7 m. The hotel organizes a children's mini-disco six times a week. Well, families with very young children will like the fact of providing a crib. Babysitting services can also be requested, but this is for an additional fee.

Of course, such a hotel is bound to offer delicious food. Like many other Greek hotels, Atrium Prestigie Thalasso offers three types of food: 'Breakfast', 'Breakfast and dinner' and 'Breakfast, lunch and dinner'. You should eat at the main restaurant. Interestingly, vegetarian food is supported here. There are also five a la carte restaurants on the territory of the hotel complex. They allow you to taste local, Italian and Asian cuisine. Not forgotten by the hotel management and bars. Of course, they can be found both by the pool and on the beach. In a word, there will be no problems with the use of soft drinks.

Advantages

  • There are many children's activities;
  • You can go in for sports;
  • There are beautiful pools;
  • Very nice beach;
  • Each room has a balcony or terrace;
  • A large number of restaurants;
  • Various types of meals are offered;
  • The adult pool has a children's section;
  • Accommodation of people with disabilities is possible.

disadvantages

  • Located at a great distance from the airport and Rhodes;
  • Jacuzzi, sauna and indoor pool – for a fee.

Lindos Princess Beach Hotel

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.5

Lindos Princess Beach Hotel

This rating does not have to consist solely of five star hotels. Yes, the previous options considered have an increased comfort of living. But Lindos Princess only matches the 'four stars'. Is it that bad? Let's find out.

Let's talk about the prices right away. They are quite tall. A week of staying in a room of this hotel will cost at least 140 thousand rubles. Well, the tour, which includes air travel, starts from 160 thousand rubles. And this is in the case of two adults, without a child! But the food will include not only breakfast, unlike some other Greek hotels. In short, the cost of living corresponds to a higher star class.

The hotel was opened in 2002. However, in 2007 it was slightly rebuilt. As a result, the number of rooms has increased, and the interiors have become even more beautiful. Now the hotel complex has 584 rooms. This allows us to hope that there will be no problems with booking a room either in winter or in summer.

The filling of the rooms is typical for a four-star hotel. It is unlikely that you will need anything even if you book the simplest room. It should be noted that there are also very large rooms – it is better for parents with children to stay in them. All rooms offer views of either the garden, the pool or the sea. Each room has its own balcony or veranda. Sleeping is offered on a bed with an orthopedic mattress. The television with satellite channels is not forgotten here either. The presence of an air conditioner is also good news.

This hotel is located on the sandy beach of Lardos, which has been awarded the so-called 'blue flag' for its cleanliness. On the territory of the hotel you can find two outdoor swimming pools filled with fresh water. There are also a couple of children's pools, which will especially appeal to readers of our rating. The hotel is also complemented by a spa and a water sports center.

As for food, there are three restaurants built here. Mainly they serve international cuisine, while the other two offer Italian and Greek cuisine. You can also enjoy seafood and barbecue specialties. There are also bars here. For example, there is one of these right on the beach, where you can get snacks, soft drinks and light meals. Drinks are also offered by the pool, where many people also spend a lot of time.

Of course, during the holidays, you need to tone your muscles from time to time. For this, there are sports grounds for football, basketball and beach volleyball. There is also a tennis court. Children are recommended to visit the mini-club and the corresponding playground.

This hotel is also very far from Rhodes – about 50 km to go to it. But only six kilometers away is Lindos, a very lively city.

Advantages

  • Buffet in the main restaurant;
  • Russian speaking staff;
  • You can do some sports;
  • There are activities for children;
  • A large number of restaurants and bars;
  • There are outdoor and one indoor swimming pool;
  • Two children's pools have been built;
  • You can find a Turkish bath and jacuzzi;
  • Wonderful beach with lots of sun loungers;
  • There is a car rental office.

disadvantages

  • Water sports and diving – for a fee;
  • Not all rooms are perfectly clean;
  • Far from Rhodes and the airport.

Rodos Princess Beach Hotel

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.4

Rodos Princess Beach Hotel

Another four-star hotel in our ranking. It is possible that it belongs to the same hotel chain. It will start on the beach at Kiotari. The aforementioned Lindos is 15 km away. The village of Aszlepio is located five kilometers from the hotel. The airport is far away – about 60 km. As for the cost, tours to this hotel for one week are provided for 137 thousand rubles and more, depending on the chosen room.

A total of 352 rooms are available here. Among them you can find standard single rooms, doubles, even triples. There is also a certain number of Junior Suites and Standart Suites. Each room has a balcony or terrace, TV with satellite channels, safe, telephone, minibar with refrigerator, toiletries and air conditioning. In short, by filling the room, you might think that you have checked into a five-star hotel. By the way, there are rooms for people with disabilities. This is important too!

Business meetings are organized in a conference hall for 150 people. Well, if you come to relax with your children, then you will prefer the playroom. However, most often in Greece you want to enjoy the sea. For this, there is a sandy beach. It is located 150 meters from the hotel. However, you need to regularly rest from sea water. This can be done in the pool. There are several of them here. One is open, the other is under the roof – it is heated, so you can swim in it even in winter. The children's pool has not been forgotten either. Also, children can visit the kids club and the corresponding playground. Well, a nanny can sit with the smallest (of course, for an additional fee).

If we continue talking about entertainment, then we cannot fail to mention sports. Here you can play golf, play tennis (including table tennis), throw darts at darts, play a game of billiards, and also go to the basketball or volleyball court. But diving, windsurfing, water skiing, canoeing and parachuting can cause even more emotions. All of this, of course, is available for a fee. But it's worth it!

Alas, this hotel does not offer all-inclusive meals. Living in a room of this hotel, you will receive only breakfast. If you are not going to go outside the hotel every day, you will have to leave money at the Dionysos restaurant built here. It offers international and local cuisine. It remains to be regretted that there are no additional restaurants here, you will not be able to taste unusual Italian or Asian dishes. But on the territory of the hotel you can find many bars. They are present both by the pool and on the beach. It will definitely not be difficult to buy a soft drink.

Perhaps this is a very good hotel. In reviews, there are often phrases that I would like to return here. And it is very difficult to understand why the hotel complex has only four stars and not five.

Advantages

  • There is a spacious conference room;
  • You can go in for sports;
  • A variety of water and underwater activities are available;
  • Great beach;
  • Each room has a balcony or terrace;
  • There are activities for children;
  • A large number of bars;
  • There is a children's pool;
  • There are rooms for people with disabilities;
  • Car rental has been implemented.

disadvantages

  • The airport and Rhodes are very far away;
  • The price includes breakfast only.

D'Andrea Mare Beach Hotel

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.4

D'Andrea Mare Beach Hotel

Another hotel designed for people who want to spend their holidays at the sea. It is rated 4 stars. Unlike some of its competitors, D'Andrea Mare is located relatively close to the airport. The beach is just around the corner here. By the way, the beach is sandy, and numerous positive reviews speak about its cleanliness.

Many Greek hotel complexes are unusually large. They try to serve a huge number of tourists. D'Andrea Mare is not like that. This is a cozy place that any married couple will be delighted with. The hotel includes a total of 89 rooms. Therefore, you will not be bothered by the noise from a large number of people. All rooms are divided into two types: Deluxe and Family Room. There are no standard rooms, so accommodation will not be cheap anyway. Excluding air travel, count on 125 thousand rubles in one week. But on the other hand, for this money you will receive meals on the All Inclusive system!

Each room is equipped with a minibar, safe, hairdryer, toiletries, TV, telephone, refrigerator and air conditioning. The hotel has a garden and a large enough terrace. It is very pleasant to walk among the southern plants – you will definitely want to do it. There is also an outdoor swimming pool, albeit not a record size. More precisely, even two – the second is surrounded by walls and sun loungers. The children's pool has not been forgotten either, where you can slide down a steep slide. Finally, we can mention the sauna and jacuzzi.

We do not recommend resting throughout the week. Try to keep your muscles toned (for male readers). Be sure to visit the gym at least once. He is modest here, but there is no need for another with so many rooms. You can also play table tennis and billiards. Alas, there are no full-fledged sports grounds here, so basketball and tennis are excluded. It's a pity…

Almost every day, there are all kinds of entertainment programs that children will like the most. A playground has been created for them. Provides a hotel and childcare services – these will be needed by parents who have arrived here with a child under three to four years of age.

It's hard to say anything special about bars and restaurants. Meals are delicious, provided on a buffet basis. There are no problems with soft drinks. What more could you ask for?

Advantages

  • The rooms are of a decent size;
  • You can play table tennis and billiards;
  • There is a playground and a children's pool;
  • Sauna, hammam and jacuzzi are available;
  • There are two outdoor pools;
  • All-inclusive meals;
  • No noise from a large number of guests;
  • Located relatively close to the airport and Rhodes.

  • There are no sports grounds;

Porto angeli

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.3

Porto angeli

Let's go back to the five-star hotels from which our rating started. A tour to Greece with accommodation in Porto Angeli costs about 160 thousand rubles. Or a little more expensive if you stay in some fancy room. This hotel is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Rhodes. According to travel agencies, the atmosphere here is warm and relaxed. But do not hope for solitude, after all, the hotel has 245 rooms, which is more than three hundred guests in the summer season! The rooms are divided into four types: standard single, double and triple rooms and Junior Suites.

Each room has a satellite TV, air conditioning, telephone, balcony or terrace, toiletries, hairdryer and radio. The use of the safe is only for an additional fee.

The hotel has a conference room that can accommodate 130 people. Therefore, the hotel is a good choice for a corporate meeting. Here you can also find a disco club that works every evening. You can also visit the fitness center – it will help keep your figure in shape.

If we talk about children's entertainment, we can note the presence of a pool with a shallow depth, a playground and a mini-club. But it should be noted that it is better not to come here with very young children – you will hardly find a sterilizer, bottle warmer and other similar things here.

You can easily find umbrellas and sun loungers around the main pool. Please note that it is located in the open air, so you cannot swim in it in winter. Unfortunately, there is no indoor pool here. This allows us to understand that the hotel is waiting for guests mainly in the summer season.

I am glad that here you can go in for sports with the whole family. For this, the hotel has a tennis court and a volleyball court. You can also play table tennis. Water sports are also available to visitors.

With regard to food, it is carried out in a cozy restaurant serving Greek, Italian and Asian cuisine. The hotel also has at least two bars, one of which is located by the pool. They can take not only soft drinks with snacks, but also ice cream.

It remains to add that the entrance to the sea is from a sandy beach. However, some guests note that the entry was not very convenient. However, no one bothers to find a place a little better, somewhere between the rocky stones. You can warm up after swimming in the sea both on a towel and on a sunbed – the latter are quite enough here.

Advantages

  • An animation team works daily;
  • There is a conference room;
  • There is a playground and a children's pool;
  • Umbrellas, sun loungers and sun loungers in large quantities;
  • There is a great outdoor pool;
  • You can do some sports;
  • Delicious meals on the 'All Inclusive' system.

disadvantages

  • Beach with not very convenient entry into the sea.

Sunshine rhodes

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.2

Sunshine rhodes

An excellent four star hotel. This is one of those hotels that only slightly falls short of the full-fledged 'five stars'. And not every resident will be able to say what exactly the hotel lacked to get a higher class.

Sunshine Rhodes is located just seven kilometers from Rhodes. This is the main advantage of the hotel, because it will not take long to get to the big city. In total, this hotel has 371 rooms. Of course, they are of very different types. The view from the room can open onto the pool, garden or sea – for the most part, the cost of living depends on this. By the way, the hotel cannot be called extremely expensive. A week-long tour to Greece with accommodation in it starts from 130 thousand rubles.

Each room has a telephone, radio, air conditioning, balcony or even a terrace, cable TV, hairdryer and toiletries. As they say, everything you need and nothing more. Meals are provided only on the 'All Inclusive' system. At the same time, you can visit not only the main restaurant for free, but also two others. We recommend the Mamma Mia restaurant, where you can enjoy delicious pizza as well as delicious Italian dishes. Well, the main restaurant offers both Greek and international cuisine. Of course, the bars are not forgotten here either – you should look for them by the pool and on the beach.

If we are talking about the beach, then we cannot fail to note its cleanliness. The beach is sandy, and there are enough sun loungers on its territory. When you get tired of the sun, sun loungers and umbrellas come to the rescue.

But let's get back to the hotel grounds. Here you can find not only rooms with restaurants and bars, but also a gym. This is good news for those who prefer to keep fit. Also, all residents of the hotel can use the outdoor pools. It should be noted that they turned out to be very beautiful! Moreover, their sizes are such that people will definitely not interfere with each other. Well, for extra money you can dive into the sea with scuba diving.

Otherwise, there is hardly anything special to say about this hotel. Someone will definitely not have enough sports grounds – on the territory of Sunshine Rhodes you cannot play basketball or tennis. Only beach and water sports are available. But most of them will definitely be enough. Here you can also go surfing and windsurfing.

In fact, Sunshine Rhodes is not in vain to close that part of the rating of hotels for families with children, which is dedicated to hotels in Rhodes. The fact is that there is practically no entertainment for children here. It is possible that your child will get bored. Although the hotel does not position itself as an adults-only place. You can also note the complete absence of Russian-speaking staff.

Advantages

  • Each room has a balcony or terrace;
  • You can play beach volleyball;
  • There is a gym;
  • Excellent swimming pools;
  • Diving and windsurfing available;
  • Delicious meals on the 'All Inclusive' system;
  • Nice sandy beach with umbrellas, sun loungers and sun loungers;
  • There is a restaurant with Italian cuisine;

  • Not very high cost of living.

disadvantages

  • There is no safe in the rooms;
  • Bad animation program;
  • Little interesting for children;
  • There are not enough sports grounds.

Best hotels in Crete

Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.9

Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas

Moving on to the hotels built on the island of Crete. This hotel is located 65 km from the international airport, which receives aircraft from a variety of European cities. It's about an hour's drive. The same amount of travel will have to go to the port in the city of Heraklion, from where you can get to other islands of Greece. Well, the nearest large city is Agios Nikolaus, located just seven kilometers away.

Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas organizes not only accommodation, but also all kinds of holidays. He can also provide free transfer from the port or airport. It also offers rental of helicopters, limousines and private planes.

The hotel has a very large number of rooms. There are a variety of rooms here, differing in their area and content. It will not be difficult for you to choose a room to accommodate not only two adults, but also one or two children. As the name suggests, it also offers villas. But, of course, living in a separate house will be much more expensive.

Each room offers a standard suite for a five-star hotel. Outside the room, you should look not only for the beach, but also for a lot of entertainment. Next to the residential buildings there is an outdoor pool filled with sea water. After passing through a shady garden, you will reach a sports field where you can play volleyball, basketball, badminton and mini golf. Not forgotten, of course, and tennis courts – there are five of them, and all of them are illuminated in the evening. There is also a Cretan Folk Art Museum somewhere here. There is also an open amphitheater on the territory of the hotel, where film screenings and show programs are regularly held. Children, on the other hand, should like the animation programs, which are also held almost every day.

Located on the island, the hotel couldn't help but get a water sports center. Here, for an additional fee, you can do not only scuba diving, but also water skiing, windsurfing, fishing and sailing. It should be noted that there are conference halls supplemented by meeting rooms. In a word, this hotel is well suited for corporate meetings.

Many who have stayed at this hotel leave positive reviews. However, sometimes there are references to minor flaws. Oddly enough, in this case there are complaints about the beach. It is sandy, there are umbrellas and sun loungers on it, but it does not always please with its cleanliness. It is noticeable that the hotel staff does not clean it very regularly. And you know that not all of its visitors like to clean up after themselves. Someone will throw a cigarette butt, someone will forget a bottle cork … However, this is not the only serious complaint about Elounda Beach Hotel & Villas. Living in it is terribly expensive. A tour to Greece with accommodation in it is estimated at at least 245 thousand rubles. The price is slightly reduced only in winter. And this price includes breakfast only!

Advantages

  • Excellent comfortable rooms;
  • There are many restaurants and bars on site;
  • There are a variety of pools;
  • There are activities for children;
  • You can go in for sports;
  • It is possible to hold festive celebrations;
  • Water sports and diving available;
  • You can stay in a villa.

disadvantages

  • Very high cost of living;
  • No meal type 'All inclusive';
  • The beach is not always perfectly clean;
  • The hotel is far from the airport.

Kalimera Kriti Hotel & Village Resort

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.8

Kalimera Kriti Hotel & Village Resort

Another representative of our rating, which has not only regular rooms, but also full-fledged villas. A tour here will cost at least 130 thousand rubles. The hotel corresponds to a five-star class, so this amount cannot be called extremely high. However, this correspondence is only on paper. It just so happened that the hotel staff does not like their work, which is why visitors complain about certain shortcomings.

But let's first move on to the description of the hotel complex provided by its owners. The hotel is 45 km from the port of Heraklion, with connections to the other Greek islands. The distance to the airport is about the same; it will take a little over half an hour to go by car. The hotel includes a large number of rooms. At the same time, it cannot be said that there are many rooms of one type or another – they are all divided approximately equally. This means that both newlyweds and married couples who have arrived here with two or three children will find a place for themselves without any problems. And this is one of the few Greek hotels offering bungalow rentals.

This hotel complex offers several types of food. Basically it is something like 'All Inclusive' – when breakfast, dinner and some additional meals are provided free of charge. The building of the main restaurant here smoothly turns into an outdoor terrace in the fresh air, from where an impressive view of the Aegean Sea opens. There is also another restaurant on the territory of the hotel, which works for an additional fee. Not forgotten are the bars providing refreshing drinks.

The hotel will definitely appeal to corporate employees. The fact is that this is almost the only hotel in Greece that can offer a conference room for 450 people. Therefore, even a very large company can make a presentation here!

Of course, the hotel offers a lot of entertainment. For example, here you can ride a scooter, water skiing, catamarans and bananas. Diving is also available. If you are fed up with the sea, or you don’t want to spend extra money, you can go to one of the two outdoor swimming pools with fresh water. Interestingly, one of them is sports – here you can pump up your swimming skills and jump into the water from the appropriate tower (the four-meter depth allows this). There is also an indoor swimming pool, which, thanks to its heating, will be especially relevant in winter.

Of course, you don't have to spend all your time in or near the water. The hotel has a bicycle station, a painting studio, many tour guides, a cooking school and a spa. All this is offered at an additional cost. But 6 unlit tennis courts are free. However, you still have to pay for the balls. There are also a couple of squash courts, a mini golf course and a small mini football hall. Guests of the hotel can also play beach volleyball, table tennis, bridge and billiards.

If we talk about the beach, then its total length is about 1.5 km. Vacationers are provided with umbrellas and sun loungers. Children will not be able to relax on the beach for a long time, so a mini-club has been created for them, functioning from morning to evening. There are also playgrounds here, and a team of animators performs daily on the territory of the hotel. Adults will love the evening shows, dance programs and the nightclub.

So what are the disadvantages noted by vacationers in this hotel? First, there is a complete lack of Russian-speaking staff. The problem is that all the amenities here must be literally achieved, discussing all the nuances with the reception in advance. And if you don't speak English, you can't do it. So it turns out that instead of a double bed, you will get 'single beds' pushed towards each other. Or your bathroom won't have a rug. Secondly, the number of rooms is very old. This is clearly visible. Moreover, the maids hardly want to work. Because of this, you can move into a bungalow, which turns out to be extremely dirty. In short, here you can easily ruin your vacation if you are unlucky. If possible, then it is better to consider the possibility of stopping at one of the other representatives of our rating.

Advantages

  • Car rental available;
  • Regular performances by animators;
  • There are entertainment for children;
  • Decent food;
  • Huge conference room;
  • You can go in for sports;
  • Rent of bicycles, scooters and others is available;
  • Nice pools.

disadvantages

  • No Russian speaking staff;
  • You may not get what you expected;
  • Some rooms and bungalows have dirt;
  • The hotel is far from the airport.

Ikaros Beach, Luxury Resort & Spa 4

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.7

Ikaros Beach, Luxury Resort & Spa 4

Another five star hotel. He collects a lot more positive reviews. However, there are also exceptions to the rule. But let's find out the negative aspects of the hotel complex a little later. Let's start with general information: the hotel is not very far from the airport, and a tour to it for a week costs around 170 thousand rubles. The rooms are divided into six different types. However, their area in any case will be small. Standard rooms are 23-24 sq. m. There are also superior rooms, the area of ​​which has been increased to 40-48 square meters. m. The rooms overlook the garden or the sea. Please note that this view can be side or straight – when ordering a number, this is marked with the letters SSV and SF, respectively.

Each room has a TV with cable channels, individually controlled air conditioning, telephone, mini fridge, mini safe, hairdryer, toiletries and a balcony or terrace. The suites are complemented by an iron, ironing board, computer and espress machine. Well, some of the bungalows and suites have a private pool. We also cannot fail to note the stable work of Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.

Of course, almost all visitors spend a lot of time on the beach. It belongs to the hotel and is offered to rest on the sand. Towels, parasols and sun loungers are provided free of charge. They will not require money for visiting the gym. Also on site you can find a jacuzzi, sauna and indoor heated pool. Oddly enough, they are also free to visit.

Of course, everyone in the hotel needs something to eat. Here, the main restaurant is primarily intended for this. It provides a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Well, those who have booked suites and bungalows with an individual pool can eat at the AYERI a la carte restaurant. At least have breakfast. Dinner is also available here for all other guests. There are also other restaurants on the territory of the hotel, offering dishes of various cuisines. Bars have not been forgotten either – they can be found by the pools and on the beach. There is also a separate area for romantic dinners and parties.

It is not recommended to spend all your time on rest and food – this way you can worsen your physical shape. Therefore, a volleyball court and tennis courts have been built here. Lighting on the latter is included for an additional fee. The hotel also has four swimming pools for adults and two for children – all filled with fresh water. There is also a playground here. Among the entertainment, one can note the corresponding programs that are held every evening – these are DJ parties, musicians' performances, piano games, and much more. Well, every week the Ikaros Beach hotel organizes Greek evenings with national dances.

What else can this hotel please? Business travelers will definitely appreciate the conference room for up to 300 people and a full-fledged business center. Ordinary vacationers can use the car rental and motor boat rental. Parents can call a nanny. Finally, it should be noted that some people in the hotel staff speak Russian.

So what do vacationers complain about? In the reviews, you can stumble upon the words that the hotel rooms are very tiny. Indeed, in this regard, Ikaros Beach lags behind many other Greek hotels, not to mention the Egyptian ones, which we wrote about a little earlier. Also, there are cases when the maids trite forget to clean your room. But most of all, the fact of the rare cleaning of the beach is upsetting. Agree, a five-star hotel shouldn't force you to lie on the beach surrounded by plastic cups and cigarette butts.

Advantages

  • Delicious Mediterranean and local cuisine;
  • Each room has a balcony or terrace;
  • There are swimming pools and other entertainment for children;
  • Decent adult pools;
  • There are rooms with a private pool;

  • The maids do not work well;
  • You may encounter a broken technique;
  • Very high cost of living;
  • The rooms are very small.

Kia ni Beach Resort Family All Inclusive

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.6

Kia ni Beach Resort Family All Inclusive

As you already understood, a very large number of five-star hotels have been built in Greece. Many of them are located precisely on the island of Crete. In particular, on this island you can stay at Kia ni Beach Resort. This hotel complex includes breakfast only. It's sad, you have to pay for lunches and dinners. However, it is possible that you will only be in the hotel in the morning. Still, it is located quite close to the center of Chania and several old towns. Why not take a taxi or bus to see them? Or even a car of the hotel complex, renting it.

All hotel rooms are divided into three categories. Studios are the cheapest – premises with an area of ​​31 sq. m, which can accommodate up to four people. There are also 50 sq. M. Cottages. m. Families with children are recommended to book them, although it is very expensive. There are also the usual suites here. Their area is 50 sq. m, which makes them huge. But whichever room you choose, you will get air conditioning, oven-oven, balcony or veranda, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, safe and toiletries.

The hotel is regularly chosen by corporate persons who organize meetings and negotiations here. To do this, they use a spacious conference room. Ordinary people will use the living room much more often, where they can take a break from the scorching sun.

It's nice that the infrastructure of the hotel complex is available at no extra charge. Money is asked from you only for accommodation and food in the daytime and in the evening. However, there may still be exceptions to the rule, but they are rare.

It must be admitted that Kia ni Beach Resort is a quiet place where people come to take a break from the noise of the big city. In this regard, the hotel management did not begin to organize a lot of various entertainments here. It has built a huge pool surrounded by sun loungers and parasols. There is also an open-air theater. There is also a gym – men need to keep their muscles in good shape. Hammam and massage are also available for hotel guests.

As for children, a pool with a minimum depth is specially designed for them. There is also a playground here. Interestingly, it was built on a pirate ship. It seems that such a site will definitely be remembered.

Breakfast is served here at the Symposium Buffet Restaurant. Meals are offered on the 'American Buffet' system. By the pool, you can also find a bar – it offers a variety of fresh fruit juices, cocktails, wine, champagne and soft drinks. There is also a snack bar on the territory of the hotel complex.

This is an almost complete description of the hotel Kia ni Beach Resort. Tours are not sold here, so an extremely small number of Russians rest here. In this regard, it is not possible to identify the main shortcomings. The only thing we can say for sure is that there are very few shelters from the sun. The same playground is not located under a roof, which is why, in the heat, it can tire almost any child extremely quickly. There are no complaints about breakfast and the sandy beach – the entrance to the sea, by the way, is shallow.

Advantages

  • Located next to an excellent sandy beach;
  • The hotel has bars;
  • Great pool for adults;
  • Decent children's pool;
  • A funny playground on a pirate boat;
  • There is a car rental;
  • Relatively close to the airport;
  • In fact, it is a cottage complex;
  • There is a conference room;
  • The gym has not been forgotten.

disadvantages

  • The price of accommodation includes breakfast only;
  • Meager entertainment part;
  • Few places to hide from the sun;
  • The area may seem too small.

Atlantis Beach Hotel

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.5

Atlantis Beach Hotel

One of the oldest representatives of our rating. This hotel opened its doors back in 1990. However, in 2009, a large-scale renovation was carried out here, so the building will seem modern, as if it was built yesterday. The main building is complemented by six bungalows. All this is located on the beach road, about one and a half kilometers from the center of a large city. The bus stop is only 150 m away. The only unpleasant moment is the great distance from the airport – you need to go 75 km to the Heraklion airport, and the Chaniai one is 64 km away.

The hotel complex is rather small. It includes only 90 rooms. In the main building, all rooms are on the second floor – there are 19 of them in total. The bungalow has 71 rooms, they are distributed between the first and second floors. Many of the rooms are double. Only 16 standard rooms are considered triple rooms. There are also family suites with two bedrooms and one bathroom – there are only six of them. One room is intended for a disabled person.

About half of the rooms have pool and garden views. The rest of the rooms will enjoy sea views. But they are often a little more expensive. As for the filling of the rooms, the visitor will receive a radio, air conditioning, TV with satellite channels, refrigerator, balcony with two chairs and a table, toiletries and a telephone. We also cannot fail to note the very fast Wi-Fi, which allows you to upload all your vacation photos to social networks.

The reception desk is open around the clock. Here you will definitely be helped if you suddenly have any questions. However, most often there are no problems with accommodation, so people are sent to this counter only if they want to order additional services. These include wake-up calls, luggage storage, laundry and car rental. Also, here you can invite a nanny to your room so that she gives her parents at least some time to rest from her baby.

Unfortunately this hotel has some drawbacks. The biggest claims are on the beach. No, it is clean, it is impossible to find fault with it. But umbrellas and chairs are provided here exclusively for money. How can you be so small? This will definitely leave a negative impression on the visitor. However, it is possible that by the time you read this rating, the hotel owners have abandoned this practice.

Also on the territory of the hotel there is an outdoor pool filled with fresh water. There is also a sun terrace here. Here, no one forbids the use of sun loungers and umbrellas.

You should definitely take a walk in the garden at least a few times. This is where the playground is located. This is nice, most often children will be hidden from the scorching sun. Well, in the main building there is a children's room in which you can find many toys. By the way, there are board games in it. How long have you played backgammon, checkers or chess? Why not play some of this with your child when the opportunity presents itself?

The hotel has a minimum number of sports areas. Basically, you can only play table tennis and also go to the gym. Also, you will definitely be offered to go diving, scuba diving from a motor boat. If you seriously want to play tennis, there is a corresponding court not far from the hotel. And there is also a water sports center nearby, where catamarans, water skiing, windsurfing and more are available.

The hotel regularly hosts animation programs. In the evening you can listen to live music and dance with your soul mate. As for food, it is provided by a large and cozy restaurant. For breakfast – exclusively 'buffet'. Interestingly, even the early birds will be able to eat deliciously – the restaurant opens already at 7:30. It also provides dinner. At the same time, during check-in at the hotel, you need to choose what exactly it will be: a menu to choose from with desserts or a full-fledged buffet. There are also bars on site. Where can we go without them?

Advantages

  • There is a conference room for 60 people;
  • There is a playground and a children's pool;
  • Nice private beach;
  • Entertainment programs are regularly held;
  • Delicious food;
  • There is a gym;

Sentido Blue Sea Beach

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.4

Sentido Blue Sea Beach

This hotel also corresponds to the five-star class. This means that the rest here will not be cheap. But he will be very comfortable. However, some of those living in their reviews wrote about certain unpleasant moments. For example, if the child so far moves exclusively in a stroller, then some difficulties await you. The fact is that the territory of the hotel is not very large, and therefore there is really nowhere to take a walk with the baby. And the steps will certainly interfere, and they are found here regularly. Another unpleasant moment described in the reviews is the wardrobe doors, which are opened in some rooms only with serious effort. You can also find fault with the beach. Here it is a very narrow sandy strip. If you arrive late, it will be impossible to find free sun loungers. By the way, the hotel supports the All Inclusive system. But it is possible to settle in outside it. This also imposes a certain problem: you must always have a card confirming your status with you. Otherwise, on the same beach, a hotel employee may charge you money for an umbrella and sunbed. Do I need to say that in the first days of your stay you will definitely forget about this card?

Finishing the theme of the beach, one cannot fail to mention the responsible lifeguard. Sometimes even too much. If there are very strong waves on the sea, then he will definitely prohibit swimming. However, this is correct. The waves of the sea can cause serious trouble, especially if you are at the beach with your child.

The hotel itself is very large. It includes 225 rooms. And not all of these are standard double rooms, the area of ​​which does not exceed 20-25 sq. m. If you have a lot of money, then you can book a family room or bungalow. Not forgotten here are the junior suites, some of them even have a private pool. As for the filling of the rooms, a refrigerator, air conditioning, telephone, satellite TV, hairdryer, toiletries, as well as a furnished balcony or terrace are usually waiting for a hotel resident. It's nice that upon check-in you will receive a so-called welcome package consisting of a fruit basket, water and a bottle of wine.

Previously, the hotel only offered accommodation with breakfast. Now, most of the tours to Greece with accommodation in this hotel involve not only breakfasts, but also dinners. Meals are offered at the main restaurant. Lunches and dinners are served here in a buffet style. Here you can find dishes of both local and international cuisine. The restaurant also offers a children's and vegetarian menu. Also worth noting is the culinary theme nights held twice a week.

Of course, the hotel also has other catering points. In particular, a separate breakfast buffet can be noted. There is a pool bar serving refreshing drinks and light snacks. You can also easily find a second bar and cafe.

Children will definitely like it here. They will definitely appreciate the creative workshop. There is also a children's mini club on site. Well, for very young kids, you can call a nanny. As with everything else, her services cost money. The lack of a playground is upsetting. The territory of the hotel was not big enough to fit.

Most of the time, many vacationers at this hotel spend on the sandy beach. But if the sea water is tired, you can go to the large outdoor pool, which is surrounded by flowers and trees. In winter, you can use the heated indoor pool. The hotel also offers yoga classes, water sports, billiards and table tennis. Not forgotten and the gym, where you can burn the accumulated calories.

Finally, we add that the airport of Heraklion is about 32 km away. The port is at the same distance. This is not to say that all this is very far away. But such a distance cannot be called close either. But the center of Stalis is literally outside the walls of this hotel.

Advantages

  • There is a gym;
  • Each room has a balcony or terrace;
  • There are junior suites with a private pool;
  • Delicious buffet meals;
  • There is a wellness center with steam bath and jacuzzi;
  • Great outdoor pool;
  • There is an indoor heated pool.

disadvantages

  • There are no sports grounds;
  • There is no playground;
  • There is no dedicated children's pool;
  • Many rooms are very small;
  • It's easy to forget the All Inclusive card in the room;
  • There is really nowhere to walk with a stroller.

Louis Creta Princess

Hotel rating (Greece): 4.4

Louis Creta Princess

Rounding out our rating is a four-star hotel. Yes, the number of stars will scare someone away. But on the other hand, there is an almost full-fledged water park here! There is also a spa center, thanks to which you can go through the rejuvenation procedures.

This hotel complex is one of the oldest in our selection. Its opening took place back in 1973. But, of course, since then the hotel has been repeatedly renovated and updated. It is located about 27 km from Souda Airport. If you want to visit the tourist resort of Platanias, then you need to go only 6 km. Well, the city of Chania is about 17 km away. By the way, every day the hotel organizes a shuttle bus to this city. The only exceptions are Sundays and national holidays.

In total, this hotel has 420 rooms. Almost half of them are located in the main building, while the rest are to be found in two-story bungalows. Most of the rooms are double rooms, which can accommodate a maximum of two adults and two children. Each room has a balcony or terrace, air conditioning, hairdryer, telephone, toiletries, mini fridge, satellite TV and radio. There is also a safe, but its use is paid.

Of course, the hotel is trying to make money by selling various goods. And it's not just about souvenirs. On its territory you can find a mini market and a jewelry store. The hotel also has a spacious conference room – it is designed for 250 people. It should also be noted the beautiful garden, which overlooks the windows of many rooms.

Everyone living in this hotel can safely use the Internet connection via Wi-Fi. But it seems to us that most of the time people simply forget about the smartphone. The fact is that there is a lot of all kinds of entertainment here. For example, you can go and practice archery. Or play mini golf. Or go to one of the two tennis courts. There are also grounds for team sports – volleyball and basketball. Well, in the evenings, a disco is held, which will also surely please someone. Animation programs have not been forgotten either – they are held in the afternoon and evening.

The hotel impresses with its two exotic shaped swimming pools. There is a small restaurant next to them, where you can order drinks and snacks. Well, breakfast, lunch and dinner are offered at the Samaria restaurant. I am glad that the meals are all inclusive. And this despite the fact that a week-long tour to Greece with accommodation at the Louis Creta Princess hotel costs around 160 thousand rubles. Keep in mind that only local drinks will be free.

Interestingly, there is a pizzeria on site. This will definitely appeal to those who are crazy about pizza – such people will definitely appreciate its taste. And there was also a place for an Asian restaurant.

Louis Creta Princess is one of the few Greek hotels that can take a child to a nursery. If the children have already outgrown the nursery, then you can invite them to the mini-club. There is also an excellent playground, made in the form of a pirate ship. Well, children can swim in a special pool with a shallow depth.

If we are talking about water procedures, then it's time to talk about the beach. Unfortunately, not everyone will like it. If you are a fan of sand clogging up everywhere, then you better consider checking into another hotel. The beach here is rocky and pebbly. Well, the island of Crete is like that, sand here often needs to be brought from other regions. In a word, it is recommended to relax on the beach in special shoes, which you will definitely be given. They will also provide such useful things as umbrellas and sun loungers. But beach towels are issued against a deposit. However, this money is then returned, so there is no need to worry.

It remains to add that the most serious drawback of the hotel is its remoteness from the airport. Unfortunately, it does not provide a direct transfer to its territory. That is, there is a transfer, but on the way the bus will call at all other hotels. As a result, the road will stretch for three hours! But at the end of the rest there is a way back. At such a moment, I really want to order a taxi, having paid crazy money.
